Color Machine Overview

What is Color Machine? Color Machine is an app that allows users to convert and explore various standard colorspaces using a highly verified color library created for the printing and color community. The app enables users to visualize colorspaces in 2D or 3D and compute colorimetric values such as the color rendering index or metameric index from spectra measured with the FD-7 device. It supports various colorspaces, spectral data, observers, illuminations, RGB-colorspaces, Lab-colorspaces, and 3D-views. The app is based on the Color Machine Library (CML), and currently, only the FD-7 measurement device is supported.

Color Machine Features and Description

Key Features:

- Conversion and exploration of standard colorspaces

- Visualization of colorspaces in 2D or 3D

- Computation of colorimetric values such as color rendering index and metameric index from spectra measured with the FD-7 device

- Colorspaces: XYZ, Yxy, Yuv, Yu'v', Luv, Lab, Lch, RGB, HSV, HSL, YCbCr

- Spectral data: Illumination and remission (requires data input)

- Observer: CIE 1931 2°, CIE 1964 10°, Judd 1951 2°, Judd Vos 1978 2°

- Illumination: Arbitrary blackbody, CIE A, B, C, D (arbitrary or D50, D55, D65, D75, D93), E, F1 to F12, arbitrary whitepoint, arbitrary spectrum

- RGB-Colorspaces: Adobe 98, Apple, Best, Beta, Bruce, CIE, ColorMatch, Don 4, EBU Monitor, EDI, Ekta Space PS5, HDTV, Rec. BT.601 (525 and 625), Rec. BT.709, Rec. BT.2020, Kodak DC, NTSC 53, PAL/SECAM (EBU 3213), Romm (Prophoto), SMPTE-C, sRGB (IEC 61966 2.1), Wide Gamut, arbitrary primaries and response-curves

- Lab-Colorspaces: CIELAB (L*a*b* 1976), Hunter Lab (Original and whitepoint-adapted), arbitrary Adams-Chromatic-Valence spaces

- 3D-View: All colorspaces can be viewed in any other colorspace with 3 channels. Lch, HSV and HSL can additionally be viewed in a cartesian coordinate system

- Metamerics and Illumination: Chromaticity error, Color rendering index, Visible range metameric index and UV range metameric index according to ISO 3664:2009 and ISO 23603:2005 with reference illumination D50, D55, D65 and D75

- Measurement devices: Currently, only the FD-7 measurement device is supported. Remission measurements currently always are based on D50

- All computations are based on the Color Machine Library (CML)

Software Reviews and Criticism

  • By sgginc

    If it has to do with ANY color or light wavelegnth this covers it.

    There are more options than can be imagined. You need to be a PHD to know what they all mean. For us simpler folk it's just a great color picker. One glaring omission is an eye dropper to pick a color off your screen. All in all (minus the eye dropper) the only color app you'll need. Thanks ... Ken
